Whenever you visit someone's home, run to the mall or meet friends for dinner at a restaurant, the last thing you might expect is that an otherwise routine trip could end with serious injuries. Unfortunately, this is the exact situation that many people find themselves in when they are victims of unsafe premises.
Property owners are expected to keep premises safe for people who are legally allowed to be on a site. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen and people get hurt because a hazard was not properly addressed. In these situations, victims may have grounds to pursue a premises liability lawsuit. If you have recently been injured on someone else's property, you should understand what types of incidences commonly lead to legal action.
